Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 1-4 with 1 double (his 33rd) and 1 run scored against the Brewers.
Batting 6th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 against the Royals.
Ian Kinsler had the night off. Resting for the playoffs, no doubt.
Ryan Braun was a late scratch from today's lineup due to flu-like symptoms.
In his last start of the year, Jason Marquis received a no-decision against the Phillies. He went 6 innings and gave up 1 run on 7 hits, 1 BB, and 7 Ks. His groundball to flyball ratio was 15-2. At the plate, he was 1-2. Marquis had 4 quality starts in his last 5 outings. He's really been all or nothing against the Phillies this year. In 2 of his starts against them, he gave up 13 runs (12 earned) in 4 2/3 innings. Ouch. In 2 other starts, he gave up 2 runs in 11 innings.
Scott Feldman picked up his 11th loss of the year. He went 4 1/3 innings and gave up 3 runs on 5 hits, 2 BBs, and 2 Ks against the Mariners. Let's be real. The Mariners don't strike fear in the hearts of any pitching staff. I didn't like Feldman's chances of making the Rangers' postseason roster before this start...
